The emphasis is on pronunciation and comprehension, and on learning to speak Spanish.

Spanish is the official language of 19 Latin American nations, as well as Spain, the Dominican Republic, and Cuba. Further, it’s one of the six official languages recognized by the United Nations.

Not bad, could be better

Each phrase and sentence should be repeated at least twice each and spoken with more clarity. The audio is somewhat distorted.

where are the reading chapters?

In the store it says that the reading chapters are available in PDF in your audible library. This is not the case as multiple reviews pointed out. I payed for the reading chapters and would love to practice them as well. Where can I find them?

Learning fast

I'm picking up Spanish at an alarming rate. Very pleased! I'm at lesson 16 now. I should be at an advanced level within 3 months.

BAR NONE Best Foundational Audio on the market

Whether you use the app or buy the entire Audiook course for levels one through five, this is the one. There are four major components of language learning reading, writing, listening and SPEAKING!!! Many options are available to recieve excellent practice with the first 3 but the latter is one we could never get enough practice with. People who are currently learning English don't neccesarily care if their grammar is 100%, it is the art of trying to communicate with others. This will bring you to a high fundamental proficiency of holding conversations! (Not just this one the entire series) I purchased this course after I finished these 5 lessons! Good luck in your language learning journey.

Effective learning tool

The series of language learning books from Pimsleur are very effective for learning a foreign language. My only suggestion for improvement is in aid of those who may not have a steep learning curve. Despite the probable intent that the learner responds as quickly as possible to gain fluency in the spoken language, the time allotted after the guide requests the learner to say or ask something in the foreign tongue is sometimes not adequate, especially for the earlier lessons. Overall I am very satisfied with this learning series or books and would recommend highly to anyone wishing to learn a foreign language. I was able to functionally speak with native speakers in under two months
